WordPress FullText Search
Search Plugin For The Most Popular CMS
Make your site data fully searchable.
The FullText Search plugin has been developed specifically for WordPress. It creates a transparent, word-based index to ease the search, adds relevance, makes meta fields and attachment files searchable by their content and even more.
The PDF, DOC, DOCX, and other formats are supported.
It complements the built-in WP search, rather than completely redefining it, unlike other search engines for WP.
This means that all functions of WP and even 3rd-party plugins will start to use new indexed search without any modifications.

How Does It Work?
Some technical details
The inbuilt ("standard") search in WordPress simply searches through all posts on your website, comparing the search request with the title and posts' content. The more files (posts, pages, etc.) the site has, the slower the search process will be. For example, if you website contains more than 10000 posts the search process can take from a few seconds to tens of seconds! It is not convenient for an end user and heavily overloads a server.
WordPress FullText Search plugin provides a background scan of all data (posts and pages) on your site, splitting them into separate words and writing a systematized structure in separate tables of database (the so-called "index"). At the same time, the search significantly speeds up because the index for the requested word (or the combination of words) immediately shows the list of all files where this word is used. Such algorithm works hundred, if not thousand times faster than the standard search. That is why a similar algorithm is used by Yandex, Google, Facebook, VKontakte and other popular search engines.
The complete search index is built once - after the first activation of the plugin. Thereafter WPFTS plugin will correct the data in the created index during adding, editing or deleting of posts/pages in a "clear" automatic mode.
The search index is saved and stored in a separate database. Your original data remains unchanged.
